A Suja Guide to Self-Care Sunday
If you’re reading this now, you might be experiencing a full season of change—with Fall moving in swiftly, the kids barreling back to school, and perhaps more work projects on your plate. We often wish that more time could magically appear out of thin air, so we can tackle each task without that “race to the finish line” feeling.
We’ve also heard the best health experts say that it’s essential to carve out “self-care” time and quite literally block it out on our calendars. But sometimes weekdays can unveil unexpected surprises, which completely shift our plans… which is why Self-Care Sunday is an actual thing.
Sometimes we need to give ourselves that “me day” permission slip, kissing any guilt goodbye and riding that solo wave for the day. This might look like a glowing facial, or it could even be wine tasting with the girls. But here at Suja, we’d like to challenge you to take it a step further, by thinking about how every self-care action might start from within.
So what does this really mean and how can you enjoy a meaningful self-care day? Keep on reading to unpack this and more.
Start with a Hearty Breakfast
A full Sunday brunch sprinkled with syrup-loaded waffles, scrambled eggs, and endless mimosas might be what the doctor ordered, but if you’re craving something slightly more nourishing on your self-care Sunday, then we have you covered!
• 1 ½ cups rolled oats
• 3 tablespoons chia seeds
• 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
• 1 ½ cups nut milk or water
• Fresh blueberries

To seal off this hearty breakfast with a small potent blast of nutrient-dense greens, you’ll want to try our Essentials Probiotic Shot—packed with adaptogenic reishi, and immune health-supporting live probiotics. This type of breakfast is how to start your “self-care from within” goals.
Find Morning Movement & Recovery
There’s no better way to mentally reach relaxation mode than a yoga class.
- A number of studies show that yoga might reduce any built-up anxiety and stress.
- Yoga also supports mobility—improving overall bodily strength and balance
- It also may reduce inflammation and strengthen overall heart health.
If you can’t make it to a physical class, you can discover plenty of free classes on YouTube, including Yoga with Adriene. After your yoga class, you’ll want to hydrate and replenish with our NEW Recovery drink: Blue Tropicaloe, specifically designed to rehydrate and recover.
“This juice is so good! I am not a great water drinker and this juice made such a difference in my hydration!” – Suja Buyer Necia
This beautiful tropical blend is a gentle fusion of ultra-hydrating electrolytes, aloe, and ginseng. Its refreshing flavor profile includes coconut water, pineapple, and passionfruit.
Create an At-Home Spa
Who needs to spend hundreds of dollars on a spa day, when you most likely have all of the essentials at home? For the most serene experience, here’s what you might want to consider:
- Jump into a comfy, cloud-like robe
- Brew a steaming cup of mint or chamomile tea
- Bring out any of your luxurious body oils and lotions
- Grab an anti-puff eye mask (or traditional cucumbers)
- Light your favorite candle… try calming lavender or jasmine
Now if you truly want to uplevel your at-home spa hydration, you can certainly ditch the ordinary spa water for our refreshing organic ginger drink, Ginger Love. This bright, tropical lemonade yields a hint of heat from the ginger and spicy cayenne. It’s also packed with juicy pineapple. Once you take a sip, you’ll always want to have this on hand for all at-home spa days!
Lounge with Entertainment
You’re not alone if you feel slightly guilty for turning on the television and tuning into your favorite show. However, this might be just the right opportunity to turn off the mind and get in a good belly laugh (depending on the genre) while firing up some salted popcorn.
If you’re bringing out all of your preferred “cinema” treats and need a tasty, bubbly beverage, our Elements: Sparkling Strawberry Passionfruit might satiate any Champagne or Kombucha cravings, all while supporting your immune system! This fizz-forward blend joins together purified sparkling water, strawberry, pineapple, apple, raspberry, passion fruit, pitaya (dragonfruit), and acerola cherry.
“This Suja sparkling juice is a delicious alternative to kombucha. A refreshing and flavorful sparkling water with a decent juice content and no added sugars, like biting into a fresh sweet strawberry, it’s chuggable even. I love that I can get my pre and probiotics as well as calcium, vitamin C, D, and zinc all in this one delicious bottle. This is the only thing I’ll drink other than water and herbal tea—truly an awesome brand. I haven’t found the blueberry ginger one yet, but can’t wait to try it! — Suja Buyer Megan
Wind Down the Right Way
At this point, you might be inches away from the end of the day, luxuriating in your self-care routine. This might be the best time to journal a bit and reflect on your day—what you’re most grateful for.
To end the evening on a high note, give your gut a little extra love with our Digestion Shot, filled with ginger, apple cider vinegar, ginseng, and live probiotics! This plant-powered shot will get you ready for Monday while nourishing your body the right way.
